In the last gallery Mr Monkey studied pictures of the Prague Spring, when Russian, Polish, Hungarian, East German and Bulgarian troops invaded Czechoslovakia to stamp out Alexander Dubċek's attempt at "socialism with a human face", then read about the collapse of the government in the Velvet Revolution in 1989. He was rather impressed that the Czechs could overthrow a government without anyone being killed. And then Mr Monkey left the museum.
